Accept Defeat, Embrace Nasko, PDP Tells Other Aspirants

The publicity secretary of Niger State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Hassan Saba, has asked defeated aspirants in the just concluded PDP governorship primaries to accept their fate, saying they are wrong for saying the conduct of the elections were flawed.


In a statement issued yesterday in Minna, Saba maintained that the conduct of the governorship primaries was flawless and a reflection of the wish of the people.

He said those complaining were crying wolf where none is and therefore urged those who lost the primaries to accept their fate,

adding that they must eschew unnecessary speculation over the conduct of the election.

He said the joint press conference addressed by the contestants has the imprint of a script written in anticipation of failure borne strictly out of their inability to impress the people.

“I am indeed pleased with the outcome of the PDP primaries. I hail the leadership of the party for the smooth process, which characterised the primaries. Let me also thank most of the aspirants for conducting themselves in the best possible way during the exercise, it shows that the next general election in Niger State will be free of violence.

“For those who lost out in the last primaries, I call on you to join hands with the party candidates to ensure PDP win all elective positions in Niger State in 2015. We must not allow selfish interest erode our sense of deductive reasoning as team players and true democrats. For emphasis sake, the process was indeed flawless.”

It would be recalled that Alhaji Umar Nasko recorded victory over other candidates vying for the governorship candidacy of the PDP in the just concluded primaries, a feat which other aspirants told journalists was attained because exercise was not free and fair.
